THE MEANINGS BEHIND THE SYMBOL
Hirondelle: This is the french word for the Swallow bird. Swallows are a symbol of good luck.
In Togo the pattern is called ‘Air Afrique’ because the fabric was also used in the uniform of the local airline company.
Sika Wo Antaban means ‘Money has Wings’. In Ghana the pattern refers to the transience of riches: rich today, poor tomorrow, for money, if one is not careful, will fly away like a bird. This fabric encourages people to make good financial investments.
